Suminagashi is an 11th century Japanese art form and precursor to modern marbling. In this one-day intensive, participants learn the basics of this centuries-old monoprint technique, including the tools and materials it requires and the ideology shaping suminagashi. Participants will develop a suite of patterns on paper and fabric using the natural forces of wind, vibration, and learn how to use frisks. Paper is provided; however, participants may bring natural cotton or silk fabrics to experiment.
